My Mum makes a pudding she has always called 'Apple Snow'. It's like Lemon Meringue: pastry case, stewed apple and a meringue topping (the 'snow'). :)

Sorry but this recipe was not well written. Luckily there is another recipe on the same website so I had to read that one to get a better understanding. But having looked into it further it would seem that the normal recipe is with cream, not custard. I did stick with this version however but it really didn't work for me.
